That's right. Monkey's back! Yea!!!!
And, he seems to have left 34 pounds of himself somewhere in the ocean. :)
I was able to go to the pier to meet him and I could tell all the way from pier while he was standing topside that we was smaller! It was actually a little like hugging a different person. I'm so proud of him. I'm hoping that we can keep this up together and his good work will be me back on track.
Also, we won first kiss!!!! Which meant that he was the first one off the boat! They had someone taking pictures but I don't know who or how to get a hold of the pictures or where they are going to show up. I would love to have a picture of it, since we are not allowed to bring our own cameras down to the pier. The other great thing is that he, for the fist time ever, did not have first night duty. So, as soon as he hopped off the boat, we got to leave! Which was good timing because it was starting to get really cold down there.
I was only able to stay for a couple nights. Even though I had called the night before and the lady confirmed three time "through Wednesday", I actually had to check out this morning. And there were no more rooms at either hotel on base. So, begrudgingly I returned home a day and a half early.
So our next order of business is to find the poor homeless guy a place to live. If you remember back, right before he deployed they ended geo-bach on his base because they are tearing down on of the barracks and don't have room. So, he is in-effect, homeless. He'll be couch surfing until we can find a place. A place he will spend his stand-down looking for instead of being home with me. ---> Not a happy wife<----
Well, that's all for now. Thought you all would like to know he's at least back on land. Even though we've got some loose ends to deal with before we can settle down for a little bit.
